What my students say

& why they love my singing lessons

Anne Daniel

'Elias has been teaching my husband guitar for a few months now. As my husband is nearly 90, blind and with mobility problems, this is a massive undertaking. Elias’ patience has been remarkable. He is gentle and considerate and although progress is very much limited my husband enjoys the lessons very much.'

Current Student

'My daughter was a complete beginner at 11 years old and after a dozen lessons, has made fantastic progression. Elias is really patient and is asking her the type of music she likes so she’s really enjoying playing those pieces. She looks forward to her lessons and needs no nagging to practice! She was going to switch to lessons at secondary school after the summer, but she’s getting on so well she’d rather continue with Elias for lessons.'

Reviews of

Ross Patterson

'Elias has been teaching Ross for just over a year. He is very patient with Ross and has helped him develop his guitar skills at a pace that Ross is comfortable with. Elias asks Ross for feedback on the type of songs that he would like to play and tries to incorporate this into the lesson plan.'
